Jade Rein (nee Chapman) returned from RYLA and gave us a most impressive account of her time there.  Jade's report will be on line shortly and will also be included in the next edition of The Banter.  
The Outbound Youth Exchange Students departed Canberra on the 14th January 2017
The collage shows all the Swiss inbounders at the Rhinefall,  Georgia's host family on my arrival in Zurich. L-R: CĂ©line, Fabienne, Me, Stefan and Philippe Schmidt, Georgia at the Rhinefall, Swiss inbounders ice skating on a break from our language camp. These are only the Southern Hemisphere inbounds, from Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Columbia, Georgia in a castle in Brig, where my school is and the view from from house in Salgesch.  
Georgia reports that so far, her experience has been amazing.  Her host family is so wonderful and it's so beautiful where she will be living, and even though the language barrier can be a bit difficult.  She was at language camp until the 4th February and then off to school on the 6th.  Georgia is so excited for the rest of her year that's yet to come.
We look forward to further reports from Georgia throughout the year.
